Literary Yarns by Cindy Wang
Crochet Projects inspired by Classic Books
An adorable way to spin a yarn: a 22 page, hardback crochet book to create literary amigurumi characters who are easy to crochet and unreasonably cute!
Put Sherlock Holmes on your pillow. Pair Hester Prynne with Huck Finn and invite Frankenstein’s monster to Jay Gatsby’s party. With the easy-to-follow crochet patterns in Literary Yarns, you can create 22 super-cute, friendly characters from 16 beloved novels and plays. Hide the Cowardly Lion in your curtains. Give Julius Caesar dominion over your desk or Elizabeth Bennet or, perhaps, Sherlock Holmes. Proclaim your love of the classics – and your skill at crafting – in a display of bookish fun sure to make everyone feel warm and fuzzy about literature.
